Featured Artist Residency:

                    Ursula O'Farrell "An Invitation to Play"

California based artist, Ursula O'Farrell, is the Eloise Pickard Smith Gallery's featured artist for the 2016- 2017 academic year. O'Farrell's exhibition "An Invitation to Play", is a soft-focused colorful expression that is unbound by creative spirituality. Her brushstroke technique produces a fluid radiance and artistic style that is reminiscent of well-known, Bay Area Figurative Art. As resident artist, O'Farrell co-creates workshops for students to collaborate on creative and meaningful projects. Click here to learn more about this resident artist.
